Debbie has been sewing and crafting since about she was 10 years old. Her grandmother made all of her doll clothes, was an avid knitter, seamstress, and loved needlepoint. Debbie’s grandmother was a great inspiration to her.
Debbie has been a nurse for over 10 years. She had a passion to help and make a difference in people’s lives. After Debbie was married, she bought a book, yarn, and a crochet hook. She taught herself to crochet and has crocheted for 40 years. Over the years, Debbie would make a quilt here and there but was so busy raising her family she did not commit much time to it until 14 years ago, when her baby graduated from high school. Debbie began sewing again and she has been sewing ever since! Debbie is self-taught, and is excited to have the time available now to pursue her crafting passions and learn additional skills/techniques.
